This knife is a real heavyweight. Originally designed for Asian cuisine, the Chinese cleaver has long since gained popularity in European kitchens. And no wonder: the rather exotic-looking model is both highly versatile and very practical. In appearance, the Chinese cleaver is very similar to an axe – especially due to its extremely wide blade, which is almost twice as long as it is wide and thus ideal for cutting or chopping through sinew and bones. What’s more, the front edge of the blade is extremely sharp and popular amongst professional and amateur chefs for chopping fish and meat. This is a powerful addition to any knife set and opens up a whole new range of preparation styles.
The Classic Line knife collection is perfect for people setting up their first home, offering a modern design, wide selection and good quality at an affordable price. Like all WMF kitchen knives, the knives in the Classic Line series are made from high-grade special blade steel and are thus extremely sharp. The high-quality plastic handles are embellished with stainless steel rivets and ensure a secure grip. Thanks to their seamless design, they are easy to clean and thus extremely hygienic. This collection is ideal for beginners, as it offers a wide range of knives to suit any purpose: vegetable, paring and preparing knives in various lengths, steak, larding, bread and decorating knives as well as a Santoku and Chinese chef’s knife and a cleaver.
